Open Your Heart

I got this Joke sent to me by a friend through yahoo messenger, which is really funny and a bit provocative, so enjoy and feel free to chip in on it :P .

عدد سكان ليبيا 5 مليون منهم 2 مليون عجائز و كبار السن فيتبقى 3 مليون لكي يعملون منهم 2 مليون لا يزالوا يدرسون فيتبقى 1 مليون للعمل منهم 200 ألف بالعسكرية و الجيش فيتبقى 800 ألف للعمل منهم 100 ألف حكوميين و سياسيين فيتبقى 700 ألف للعمل منهم 450 ألف مرضى بالمستشفيات و معاقين و مقعدون فيتبقى 250 ألف للعمل منهم 249998 في السجون فيتبقى 2 فقط للعمل أنا و إنت و إنت مسيب الدنيا كلها تخبط و قاعد تقرأ في الرسالة أهيا.

I was also searching through youtube, before writing this post ,and Europe crossed my mind so I started searching for them and I bumped into this oldie, which I think is worthy of a posting :P.

I've posted the lyrics below :

Days filled with joy,
And days filled with sorrow
I dont know just what to do
Am I happy today,
Am I lonely tomorrow
Everything depends on you
And Ive been waitin
For the angels to knock on my door
Ive been hopin
That everything could be like before
Open your heart
And tell me whats wrong
Why cant you talk like you used to do before
I dont know if Im weak
I dont know if I m strong
Hey girl I cant cope anymore
And Ive been waitin
For the angels to knock on my door
Ive been hopin
That everything could be like before
Open your heart,
Let me hear you
Make up your mind ,
I want to hear you call
Open your heart,
Want to come near you
Make up your mind,
Before we lose it all
Maybe that time
Has its own way of healin
Maybe it dries the tears in your eyes
But never change
The way that Im feelin
Only you can answer my cries

Age Verification

I don't know about most of you, but as for myself, when I'm confronted with a website that has age verification I usually scroll down to my year of birth. So, the other day when I was accessing this website I noticed for the first time that the list of years was getting quite long. And I was like why am I being so stupid, why not just scroll down to the year of birth of those who are 18 this year.
So I did and I scrolled down to 1990 ........................................... yeah we are that old that was the first time that I actually noticed how old I'm getting :-S.................... but if you check the site you'll notice I'm still in denial :D.

Craig's List Marriage Proposal

What am I doing wrong?
Okay, I'm tired of beating around the bush. I'm a beautiful
(spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I'm articulate and classy.
I'm not from New York. I'm looking to get married to a guy who makes at
least half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind
that a million a year is middle class in New York City, so I don't think
I'm overreaching at all.

Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives? Could
you send me some tips? I dated a business man who makes average around
200 - 250. But that's where I seem to hit a roadblock. 250,000 won't get
me to central park west. I know a woman in my yoga class who was married
to an investment banker and lives in Tribeca, and she's not as pretty as
I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right? How do I
get to her level?

Here are my questions specifically:

- Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me specifics- bars,
restaurants, gyms

-What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won't hurt my

-Is there an age range I should be targeting (I'm 25)?

- Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the upper east
side so plain? I've seen really 'plain jane' boring types who have
nothing to offer married to incredibly wealthy guys. I've seen drop dead
gorgeous girls in singles bars in the east village. What's the story

- Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows - lawyer, investment
banker, doctor. How much do those guys really make? And where do they
hang out? Where do the hedge fund guys hang out?

- How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am looking for

Please hold your insults - I'm putting myself out there in an honest
way. Most beautiful women are superficial; at least I'm being up front
about it. I wouldn't be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn't
able to match them - in looks, culture, sophistication, and keeping a
nice home and hearth.

Dear Pers-431649184:
I read your posting with great interest and have thought meaningfully
about your dilemma. I offer the following analysis of your predicament.
Firstly, I'm not wasting your time, I qualify as a guy who fits your
bill; that is I make more than $500K per year. That said here's how I
see it.

Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is plain and simple a
cr@ppy business deal. Here's why. Cutting through all the B.S., what you
suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring
my money. Fine, simple. But here's the rub, your looks will fade and my
money will likely continue into fact, it is very likely
that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won't
be getting any more beautiful!

So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning
asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, your depreciation
accelerates! Let me explain, you're 25 now and will likely stay pretty
hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in
earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you!

So in Wall Street terms, we would call you a trading position, not a buy
and hold...hence the rub...marriage. It doesn't make good business sense
to "buy you" (which is what you're asking) so I'd rather lease. In case
you think I'm being cruel, I would say the following. If my money were
to go away, so would you, so when your beauty fades I need an out. It's
as simple as that. So a deal that makes sense is dating, not marriage.

Separately, I was taught early in my career about efficient markets. So,
I wonder why a girl as "articulate, classy and spectacularly beautiful"
as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to
believe that if you are as gorgeous as you say you are that the $500K
hasn't found you, if not only for a tryout.

By the way, you could always find a way to make your own money and then
we wouldn't need to have this difficult conversation.

With all that said, I must say you're going about it the right way.
I hope this is helpful, and if you want to enter into some sort of
lease, let me know.
